Homemade Sausage Recipes

I love homemade sausage recipes! This breakfast sausage recipe from Savory Lotus looks delicious. If you are on GAPS, you can tweak it by using honey instead of maple syrup. 

How to Make Butter

If you want to learn how to make butter, I have found two recipes that look really good. The first is a homemade butter recipe from Naturally Mindful. If you want to use an appliance like a food processor, blender or stand mixer, this one should work well.
